Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Dylan Submits to Censorship in China

Buying a Chinese radio is a lot different than letting them censor your setlists. When I buy Chinese products, I don't compromise my artistic integrity. It's the same thing with selling songs to advertisers. Even if he lets Victoria's Secret use a song, he can still play it.

But hey, it's just two songs, right? And he hardly ever plays them anyway (execept of course that he played Blowin in Taiwan). How many songs would it be okay for the Chinese to censor? Three? Ten? At what point does it become unacceptable? What if the US government told him what songs to play? Would that be okay with you?
